Oh, I did never know such a help tool existence.  Thanks so much!
But strangely enough, autogen.sh and perl work today without doing
anything in particular.  What I did since last night was only to
shutdown and to boot the PC.  Such is one of mysteries of Cygwin.

Great!  Now I'm running trunk Emacs that I built with the patch.
I also verified it runs with no problem for the batch jobs; I'm
using newly built ELisp packages, such as Gnus, for the first time
in these 7 days.  Thanks a lot!
